Breeding for the Future Program
ICB officially launched the Breeding for the Future program in June 2014, with the goal of assisting breeders in implementation of modern, scientific principles in their breeding programs. ICB is providing courses, written materials, computer simulations, and videos.
In addition to breed-specific groups that will be working to educate breeders and compile a global pedigree database back to founders, the ICB Health Chairs group will be working on developing strategies to keep breeders up to date with the latest research and veterinary developments, and also interfacing with the ICB DVMs and ICB Geneticists groups.
There are currently almost 100 breeds enrolled and nearly 4,000 breeders participating through the Breeding for the Future Facebook group.

and that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge.
